Course Description : Globalization is possibly the most overused word in contemporary social science, but it is far from being a new phenomenon nor is globalization irreversible. This course provides an introduction to the history of the international economy over the past two centuries, and asks : What were the political and technological underpinnings of increased trade, capital and labour ﬂows during the period ; what were the effects of these ﬂows on income distribution within countries ; and what political responses did they provoke ? What can explain the deglobalization experienced in the years between 1914 and 1945 ? What, if any, were the connections between globalization and convergence ? Between globalization and growth ? Along the way, we will cover such basic topics in international economics as comparative advantage, the gains from trade, factor proportions theory, international factor ﬂows, and the political economy of trade.

Course Description : This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the international rules that govern international trade and investment. The course undertakes an in-depth analysis of the rules regime of the WTO. This includes an examination of the policy objectives behind the rules, the compromises resulting from the complex negotiating process, and the operation of the rules. This latter will be undertaken through a study of speciﬁc dispute settlement cases. The course will conclude with a discussion of so-called "trade-and" issues for which rules have yet to be negotiated, to wit, trade and labor/environment/competition policy.
